Details On Natal's Motion Capture Technology

ChangelingJane Re:Anyone Know How Accurate Natal Is? (121 comments)

It might be an awkward combo, but one option would be to use standard gamepad controls, and then read relative shoulder/torso movement once you're in a position to lean.

Caffeinated Alcoholic Drinks May Be Illegal

ChangelingJane Re:Extended effects (398 comments)

For some people with mental illness or certain genetic predispositions, marijuana can trigger the onset of schizophrenia. And once it's triggered, there is no going back. It's only for a small portion of the population, but it is still a potential risk.

French Branch of Scientology Is Convicted of Fraud

ChangelingJane Re:Wake me up when... (622 comments)

It isn't just Western religion that has blood on its hands. The East has its own, just in different amounts and for different reasons. For example. They have also been equally as capable at fostering sexism and racism, among other things.

Microsoft Blocks Pirates From Security Essentials Software

ChangelingJane Re:Get Microsoft out of the free OS market. (291 comments)

Yeah, Gnometris is the future.

...Sorry, couldn't help myself. Even the less bleeding-edge games (indie, casual, downloadables) are mostly on PC, aren't they? I know more are seeing Mac releases, but I haven't heard much on Linux versions.

Microsoft Blocks Pirates From Security Essentials Software

ChangelingJane Re:I sort of agree (291 comments)

On the other hand, if it isn't in any way better than the alternatives, then why did they bother creating it?

So that John Q. MySpace User who doesn't know enough about antivirus software to go looking for AVG or Avast will essentially have it delivered to his doorstep? Some protection is better than none, and people who know the least about security issues are the most at risk, really.

ChangelingJane Writing is a Tough Field (123 comments)

And, it's at minimal expense to taxpayers, since the writers are consulting pro bono.

Just goes to show, nobody wants to pay writers. Absolutely nobody.

Voyager Clue Points To Origin of the Axis of Evil

ChangelingJane Re:Why Axis of Evil? (293 comments)

It also seems kind of silly to call the data "evil" when it's the current scientific model that is at fault. The name almost implies, "Damn it, universe! Do what we want you to do!"
